Welcome to Aughton Town Green Primary School Only My Best Is Good Enough For Me

Year 2

Welcome to our Year 2 online teaching.

As we are  unable to set school reading books, we hope you will continue to read daily with your child as this is the single most important thing you could do.

You should all have received a log in to Bug Club reading via email. This is a great way to read new books with your child and keep them working on their reading comprehension. If you do not have this please contact us.

 

All the activities set are aimed at a child of average ability. Feel free to tweak them to suit your child's individual needs. The activities relate to the daily zoom teaching sessions so, ideally, the children should do the activity after the lesson.

We understand that many parents will be working so please don't worry if you can't complete all the work.

Daily zoom sessions:

9.15 am - English

10.45am - Maths

1.15pm - Topic
